We used this devotional to get our women's small group started. It was more of an ice breaker for 6-8 women who really did not know each other and our ages ranged from late 20's to 80 years old. We met weekly for 5 weeks and took turns leading. We all read the 5 readings for each week and the leader would ask each of us to share a highlight from the readings and then she would focus on a reading of her choosing to go deeper. Gardening was such a perfect metaphor for life in Christ or "Growing in Grace".
